Pylon’s Bio-Guard Coating is used in a variety of industries to create more hygienic environments that complement existing cleaning protocols. Recent success with Bio-Guard has been recognized in the aged care sector, hospitals, medical centers, commercial furniture & joinery, wall paneling & benchtops, doors, handrails, and is recommended for many surfaces that could pose a threat of cross-contamination.

Pylon Coatings has successfully tested the Bio-Guard polyurethane coating against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, on treated surfaces. When tested to ISO 21702:2019 Pylon Coatings saw a reduction in SARS-COV-2 on the surface of up to 82% after 4 hours when compared to a control.
